Swiss Graphic Design and Typography Revisited

With “Swiss Graphic Design and Typography Revisited” the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) is for the first-ever time supporting a project in the Sinergia programme in which researchers from seven Swiss universities investigate the role and status of Swiss graphic design from today’s perspective. It is divided into three sub-projects: “Principles of Education”, “Networks of Practice” and “Strategies of Dissemination”. This three-year project started in October 2016 and is the biggest research collaboration established in the design field since the SNSF began its activities.
